DOWN WITH ANY ELITE
August 11 2002
The self-defence of the shopkeeper can only be justified when he should not only attack fellow-masspeople but also disturb the private life of leaders who caused the annoying situation. Unfortunately masspeople always attack each other, the elite stays out of range.
I propose to put direct pressure on members of the elite who take decisions that disturb the life of masspeople. The subordinate position of the masses will never change when they only fight each other. A century of leftist actions did not fundamentally change this situation.
The vast majority of mass actions is directed against other masspeople. This has to stop!
I often wrote about my doubts of the
effectiveness of demonstrations see my First Letter.
Though I have participated in many actions, I am not happy. Participating people are often sympathetic but they only ask and beg and never force leaders to act differently. Besides most actions are at the best directed against lower echelons of the elite, never against people with real power.
Leftist leaders only want to
improve society, they do not want to change it fundamentally. They block any attack on
the power centre. Leftist mass actions are compatible with the elitist
(Machiavellian) policy of divide and rule: divide the masses and the elite will
I prefer the masses stop fighting each other because of some imaginary contradictions, which are introduced by people who certainly do not belong to the masses. Therefore I propose the formation of massgroups in which masspeople forget their small differences and fight together against people who really disturb their life. When active masspeople block the wishes of the elite on one point, they know they can influence their life on all points. Then they are not anymore powerless but can determine their own life. Then they will become free people.
Lets try out some new direct action methods to influence leading people.
Yours truly, Joost van Steenis
